You told me of a place lovelier than Camelot or El Dorado,
As stunning as a vision in a fable where my heart longs to go,
You told me how the monsoon rain there falls rhythmically,
Pouring down on the deep, dark enchanted jungle’s canopy,
You spoke with a nostalgic spark in your eyes like the most captivating storyteller,
And I as your diligent listener held on to every detail I could remember,
For someday I intend to travel to your homeland,
To see if your world is one I could ever understand

    Ooo nice! I love the dreamy and rose-tinted feel to the idea of paradise. However, we could look at a darker meaning that the speaker wants the paradise that the other person is talking about because maybe their homeland is dangerous or grim in some way and want to get away from it. Fantastic poem!

    This is amazing! I love how you used Camelot and El Dorado to describe how much more beautiful your world is. especially bc they are so different, it gives you a picture of something unique and amazing! The rhyming you used made this even more beautiful!
